Beachy Days and Just Short of a Decade

Now that we are almost two months through surgery recovery and lifestyle changes I can report that even though it has gotten easier it has not gotten any less annoying.  I am two months sober from alcohol, tylenol, and several other medications that could have aided in my allergy fest that I had experienced earlier…

Future Mountaineer

Good Morning!  I hope that everyone had an enjoyable 4th of July and continue to have a fun holiday weekend! It is another Sunday morning.  I always cherish Sunday morning postings.  It has a sense of ritual and relaxation.  I am not really sure why, assuming it is all mental, because Sunday acts no differently…

“That Uncle”

Everyone claims to have “that uncle” as a part of their family tree. You know the guy I am talking about.  In fact I bet you are picturing him now and are either laughing hysterically at the last thing he did or shaking your head in embarrassment to know such a man. He is the…

The Case of the Streptococcus – Part 2

It had been three days since she had left her house.  When she tried to follow her normal routine she found that the baker’s stares would linger on her a little too long when ordering her morning bagel and coffee, the bus driver would ask her one too many times to take a seat while they were moving,…

The Case of the Streptococcus – Part 1

She ran up and down Skater Street desperately trying to find the detectives. She had the address but every time she lifted to read off the small crinkled paper a rain drop would land, smudging and drowning away the words. Looking down, huddling most of her body over her new watercolor picture, she nudged forcefully into someone.…

Crossing the Border

I’m away on spring break but I set up some posts to keep you entertained! Enjoy! I have an inner nature to be apprehensive towards any situation involving my children. Living in this area intensified that behavior with the actions of man that have directly affected us. We had our cars broken into leading to the theft…

Social Butterfly

I am a loner. A recluse. Completely weird, way too sarcastic and inappropriate. Making friends is hard because of these traits.  Before children this wasn’t the issue.  Being the odd ball chick who likes to throw down on video games and kick ass in beer pong is an instant appeal to most people.  I am still that girl.  I…

The Flawed Calendar

Days blur together when you are not concerned with counting down to your next day off or your next scheduled vacation time.  Weave in countless activities and events happening weekly the only thing that gets me from Point A to Point B is that annoying sound my phone makes when the reminder screams at me. Every so often I can tell…

Pumpkin Seeds & Weeds

Today I battled the yard. This is not any ordinary yard but a yard already preoccupied by its own species,  You would think that aliens would not want to sprout their spores in New Mexico due to dry, infertile conditions but unfortunately I was mistaken. It’s true that we are only a short drive from Roswell making it plausible to believe that…
